    More Facts about the Notable Automotive Innovations throughout Mercedes-Benz® History

    Last updated 6 months ago

    For more than a century, Mercedes-Benz has been at the forefront of vehicle design and innovation. When you purchase a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you will benefit from decades of ingenuity and refined craftsmanship. To this day, Mercedes-Benz vehicles continue to represent the future of automotive craftsmanship and technology. Let’s explore some of the most notable automotive innovations throughout Mercedes-Benz history.

    1886: First Mercedes-Benz Vehicle

    The first patent awarded for the invention of the automobile was granted to a German engineer named Carl Benz in 1886. His creation was called the Motorwagen, and it was a three wheeled, early prototype of the passenger vehicle. This early car set the stage for decades of automotive innovation to follow.

    1906: Mercedes-Benz Electric Cars

    While the electric vehicle seems like a very contemporary driving technology, electric driving technology can trace its origins to the Mercedes-Benz electric cars that were first introduced in 1906. Mercedes-Benz created both passenger and emergency vehicles that were entirely powered by an electric battery. Now, more than a century later, this sustainable technology continues to represent the future of how we drive.

    1931: Independent Suspension System

    In 1931, Mercedes-Benz created the first ever four wheeled independent suspension system. This innovative suspension system set a new standard for both vehicle performance and safety. Along with hydraulic braking and supercharged engines, Mercedes-Benz became known for offering the highest level of vehicle performance.

    1978: Anti-Lock Brakes

    Anti-Lock Brakes are a standard safety feature in cars to this day. Mercedes-Benz was the first automotive manufacture to develop this innovative braking system for its vehicles. With ABS, automotive safety reached a new level of precision.
